Hi and thanks for stopping by.

Today I am so happy to be able to sharing my latest layout with you all. Having a craft shop that is open 6 days a week doesn't give me many days off so to have a day to myself to just create is so precious to me. 

 I decided not to create for a class but rather to create just for me to have fun and push my boundaries of what I would normally do. So this is the end result and I am over the moon happy with the result.  I am so happy with this layout that I can see me taking my creating this way in the future.

This is a special photograph of myself and hubby on our wedding day some 12 years ago now. It was a very hot day in Queensland and our beautiful old car had no air conditioning, just all windows down, we melted.

I loved the colours in this photo and used the colours in the bouquet as my inspiration. 

Ive used very old Blue Fern papers for the backgound. Tearing and punching the edges before placing them down. A little bit of stenciling with crackle paste. Lots of pieces and embellishments on this layout are old and I hunted through my personal stash to complete it.
                                      You can see that there are many layers to this page
Ive used Stamperia crackle paste on the chippy and I love how this crackles even when using a heat gun. 49&Market, Green Tara and Prima flowers, 2Crafty chipboard, Dusty Attic chipboard. The wire bud stem is that old I can't remember where I got it from.

                         I just love flowers and they are on nearly every layout that I do.

So many beautiful embellishments from the Finnabair Art stones, Melange pebbles, Bud stems from Green Tara, bits of old lace, gauze, hand made resin angels (which are hard to spot) so many little hidden gems.

I then finished it off with Couture Creations Mica powders which are my new fav thing to play with, The shimmer in them is just fantastic.

Well thats about all I can share with you today and I hope I have brought a little inspiration to you. So till next time, keep crafting and I will see you all again when I have something special to share.
